I have always been able to procrastinate with the big boys, but in the last two weeks, I have found a new way to procrastinate that has absolutely no redeemable value. The galaxy. Kind of.

Introducing the #1 Outfielder in the State of Michigan....as awarded by the Michigan High School Athletic Association...aka Nephew 3. He has always been the long ball hitter. Even when he could barely stand, he could hit the plastic ball out of the yard with the plastic bat.
He and his team played the State Championship game this afternoon and lost. It was heartbreaking. But did I mention that Nephew 3 had a great year and was named the #1 Outfielder in the State of Michigan?

We attended a couple sessions with the Willow Creek band and one with Hillsong United. My favorite thing about the week was being in a room with 8000 other people who love to sing to Jesus. Being mostly worship leaders, the singing was amazing. It made me think that it might be a little like it will be in Heaven when we are all there singing loudly in worship of our God. It is a feeling I cannot describe but really love.

I never dreamed I would be at a worship arts conference, but here I am. And, loving it! We sang, we listened to inspirational interviews, and while the rest of my team was listening to the guy who invented Veggie Tales, I attended Rags 101. It was so great to get scenery ideas from the guy who does the same for a HUGE church with a HUGE budget. A perfect scenario. Not practical for me, but easily pared down for my budget and skill level. He buys fabric yardage that is 20' wide. How in the world would I ever get that home in my car, even if I could afford it? Oh, but it made such cool stage sets.

I did not buy much at the show, which was the plan. Believe me, it was not because there was nothing I wanted. I did buy three vintage enamel buttons, kind of art deco looking. I will use them for jewelry clasps.
Vintage everything is the trend in jewelry these days. I found these little bead caps at a booth with the coolest vintage stuff.
Keeping with the vintage theme, these are vintage lucite, 2 hole beads. I am not sure what I will do with them yet, but they caught my eye and when I saw the 70% off sign, they were mine. Stay tuned to see what happens with them.
